I have binge watched all of 2003 aside from the Kay/Jill mother daughter storyline 2003 was insanely good from Sharon leaving town, Cassie falling into the lake to Victor and Michael committing commercial bribery causing Ashley’s accident and mental breakdown. Nick turning Victor in to the authorities behind his back how I wished I watched this when it aired. 
 

I do agree when people say 2003 was the last classic year of y&r although 2004 and 2005 were still interesting 

You cannot compare to the late 80's and 90s.. nothing compares. I was hooked!

What interests me about Ashley's breakdown  is she is acknowledging something soaps - and the soap press - often fail to acknowledge. Many times,  what Rick  (and to a degree, Blade)  did to her would just be seen as hot, or fun, or soapy, or no big deal. Even relatively recently on Y&R, Malcolm taking advantage of Dru had gone the same route. 

I assume Bell did this  mostly because he needed a reason to write Ashley out when Brenda quit, but it's still extremely rare - shocking, even  - to  hear  a woman  lay out  the way she was violated, in  language that is not sugarcoated.

I remember when Lily's paternity was revealed the show acted for the most part Dru and Malcolm had some one night stand. Instead of expressing what it really was.

Epperson, Walton, and Barton were definitely the highlight of the story’s climax as they gave all out performances. Epperson’s above really highlighted some raw emotion there over the betrayal.

I don’t recall anyone else besides Ashley, Jill and Mari Jo knew about the Blade/Rick reveal though. Rick slithered out of town after receiving death threats from Mari Jo and Jill. Ashley left right before Christmas as the above occurred in early December. And when Shattuck’s Ashley returned a few months later in March ‘96 she barely mentioned Blade but was still apprehensive about Mari Jo.

Which is a shame because Dru was indeed so disgusted with what Malcolm did she considered abortion but chose not to over her personal health risks. The later romantic stuff between Malcolm & Dru in 2000  didn’t feel right either.

Have we listed Robin Amos as  writer during the Bill Bell era?

I came across the name in a July 1980 script. He/she also wrote for SFT and GL in the 80's but that is all I could find.

This is one the writers which we have little info online so far; in case of Y&R not even a year yet!

The pretty Ashley's breakdown..

 

 

I Loved Brenda!!! she was a beautiful and sensitive Ashley, had great chemistry with many actors and this story was indeed powerful.. are there any more scenes from her last episodes, from Blade's death and her finding our the truth? in English, not in German
